Hi eveyone. Not sure how far this will go as i dont have many friends but its worth a go. I'm looking to raise money for the start up of my business idea. Which is putting together two things i realy enjoy. Driving and Animals. My business will be a pet taxi which will do all aspects of taxi work.
Ok now my story. I was medical discharged from the Army and sadly my marriage broke down as a result of this added presure. I was unable to work for a year as was having treatment for my hips. During my time off I slipped into depresion which intern re amurged my anxierty. As a result of loosing my dream job wife mates and home. I was very suicidal and self harmed. Until one day i got a text asking did I want to do my taxi badge from helena . So I did it and now have it and want to use it in away that i love Animals this and the love for my daughter to give her a future helped me out of depresion. And now I want to work hard and start this business and make it a possitive thing I can conentate on and make sure my daughter has a good life. With a happy Daddy. So what's the money for ?? I need to buy a van that can be used as a taxi. I also need to buy some equipment and insurances.
Anyway hope you can help it was a customer's ideas to do this so not sure how it will turn out .. thank you xx
